Making a Tee Pee Tent out of a Queen Sheet

Posted by darlingdarleenadmin on

Making a homemade tee pee tent has been on my long list of “things to make” for my children.  Since it was a project on the bottom of the list, I did not anticipate it happening anytime soon.  But with the holiday season, the thought of the children running down the stairs Christmas morning and seeing a tee pee strung with white lights and a welcoming front door for imaginary adventures made it sound magical and up’d its position on the list.  So, Christmas Eve Eve was when I ran out and grabbed supplies and started the project.  Once the kids were all in bed, I completed the tee pee in about 3 hours.  Yes…I did stay up past my bedtime to complete.  Talk about down to the wire!

Thanks to pinterest, I found this tutorial from My Poppet.  I wanted to keep cost down and was hesitant with some of the tutorials I found that called for yards of fabric because it can get really expensive, and I just didn’t have the time to go the fabric route. This tutorial uses one queen flat bed sheet.  Perfect.  Not a lot of brain damage, and one trip to Target took care of it.  The wooden dowels were the most expensive item.  I purchased them at home depot and had them cut to size.  The purple pom pom trim I found in my sewing box.  In the instruction, you sew tubes that the wooden dowels feed through, making the tee pee very secure and from falling over or falling apart.  I strung white light around the top and pom pom trim.  The tee pee transforms any nook into the perfect hideout.
